MLS Game Summary - San Jose at Portland



(Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: San Jose 1, Portland 1

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Chris Wondolowski converted a penalty kick in the 24th minute Saturday to tie Major League Soccer's single-season scoring record, but he was unable to produce another goal as the San Jose Earthquakes were held to a 1-1 draw by the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen Field.

Wondolowski's strike, his 27th of the season, sees him go level with Roy Lassiter of the 1996 Tampa Bay Mutiny for most goals in a season, putting the finishing touches on a banner regular season that saw the 29-year-old lead the 'Quakes to the MLS Supporters' Shield with 66 points on the campaign.

The opener came midway through the opening period when Steven Lenhart went around Donovan Ricketts, but the Timbers 'keeper quickly tracked back and put in a sliding challenge that brought down the 'Quakes striker in the box. There was no question as to who would take the ensuing penalty kick as Wondolowski hammered home the shot to Ricketts' right.

San Jose held the lead until the 67th minute when Jon Busch conceded a rebound off of a shot from close range. Bright Dike was arriving to stuff home the loose ball for his fifth goal of the season.

Portland's season comes to an end as the Timbers finish their sophomore term in MLS with 34 points in 34 games.

San Jose advances to the postseason as the top overall seed and will take on the winner of Thursday's play-in game between the fourth-place Los Angeles Galaxy and the fifth-place Vancouver Whitecaps.
